Custom printing on Canvas and Canvas stretching
Premium Giclee Canvas (Matt and Glossy Finish) has the unique texture of a true fine-art look. This Giclee canvas has an extremely wide color gamut for accurate color reproduction. Combining this with a bright white surface makes the art/image pop off the canvas. This is the ideal canvas for artists looking to reproduce Giclees that are identical to the original. It is water resistant for increased durability and stretchable for framing. All canvas prints are sprayed with a UV coating. Bring us your art in any form or size and we will reproduce it to your needs. Add paint to it to make it unique.
WRAPPED EDGE STYLES
1. Usually, we make a mirror copy around the outer edge of your image that wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar. This makes it look as though your image continues around the sides to the back of the frame but does not use up any of your image. This is usually the best way to print it for stretching. From the sides, you will see what looks like a continuation of the image as shown on the right.
2. We can also add a black or white border to your image that wraps around the sides that are not facing the viewer. From the sides, the edges of your image will be all black or all white.
3. Use the image to continue around the sides to behind the print. However, this will use up the sides of your image so that the area visible from the front will be reduced (so that it looks like it is cropped).
All canvases that are printed large enough to allow, will be finished with a gallery wrap corner that is folded professionally to not show at the sides.
We can stretch any canvas around our high-quality custom molding. Cost is CI$6 (USD7.32) per linear foot of standard 7/8" molding and $7.00 per foot for 2" molding (needed for large canvas or preferred for the artistic effect of a thicker molding).
Measure the size of the image that you want showing. Remember that it takes about two inches of material to wrap around the molding. If there is less, it can still be stretched and stapled to the side of the molding rather than the back. If there is an all or partial white border showing along the sides of the frame, some people then paint this black so that it looks better.
Canvas is professionally folded around the corners in the technique called "Gallery wrap."
Stretching prices includes hanger and rubber spacers on the bottom corners to protect your wall.
